Hippity Hop and Inspirational Sayings ATC's

I was so happy to be able to attend an ATC meeting this month- finally!  Our theme, Inspirational Sayings.

 We begin with a 1-4-1 trade and I made Easter themed ATC's for fun- using Globecraft and Piccolo Bunny Accents (from SweetStamps).

 I used Distress Inks on the background and an ATC stencil by SweetStamps. The chipboard Piccolo accent bunnies (from SweetStamps) were covered with foil and colored with Copics. The Piccolo egg was embossed with enamel Embossing powder.  I used a Cheery Lynn Die (from SweetStamps) for the grass. The Sentiment are by Create with TLC.

AAA-Easter Colors
Allsorts- Easter

  For my Inspirational ATC's- I made a few different varieties:

 This is another Distress Ink background and a stencil by Sweet Stamps. The Sentiment is also Sweet Stamps. 

 Same inks as above, different stencil. The Flowers are Sweet Stamps and the sentiments are Unknown.

 I love this fun sentiment by Ann-tipications, and the shoes are by SweetStamps. The background- Distress Inks.
Challenge Up Your Life- Embossing

More Distress Ink background and the images are by Flourishes (retired).

Finally, I tried a new Technique I saw on Stamp TV called Emboss Resist using Alcohol Markers.  I masked the area over the butterfly instead of embossing it.  using Lawn Fawn Stamps Flutter By.

Thanks for stopping by!
